Tricycle has a nice little piece remembering Master Seung Sahn. Seung Sahn was a prolific Korean Zen Master who founded the Kwan Um School of Zen and is most remembered for his teachings on “don’t know mind.”

I’ve posted a few times about Master Seung Sahn on this blog.

Howl by Allen GinsbergWord cloud’s from Wordle.net might just be my favorite thing in the entire world recently. I’ve been making a bunch recently and I just get a kick out of taking the texts of whole documents and dropping them in. I did 2 weeks of AIM chats between me and my wife, the Gospel of John, and the Dhammapada to name a few.

This image is Allen Ginsberg’s epic, “Howl.”

Thich-Nhat-Hanh-Peace-In-Oneself-Peace-In-The-WorldTom closed our meditation group with this Thich Nhat Hanh piece. It’s beautiful.

The Refuge Chant

At the foot of the Bodhi tree, beautifully seated, peaceful and smiling, the living source of understanding and compassion, To the Buddha I go for refuge.

(bell)

The path of mindful living, leading to healing, joy,  and enlightenment, the way of peace, to the Dharma I go for refuge.

(bell)

The loving and supportive community of practice, realizing harmony, awareness, and liberation, to the Sangha I go for refuge.

(bell)

I am aware that the three gems are within my heart. I vow to realize them. I vow to practice mindful breathing and smiling, looking deeply into things. I vow to understand living beings and their suffering, to cultivate compassion and loving kindness, and to practice joy and equanimity.

(bell)

I vow to offer joy to one person in the morning, and to help relieve the grief of one person in the afternoon. I vow to live simply and sanely, content with just a few possessions, and to keep my body healthy. I vow to let go of all worries and anxieties, in order to be light and free.

(bell)

I am aware that I owe so much to my parents, teachers, friends, and all beings. I vow to be worthy of their trust, to practice wholeheartedly, so that understanding and compassion will flower, and I can help living beings be free from their suffering. May the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha support my efforts.
